SketchUp being free (since google bought them) made a lot of people use it, so there are many people with experience that can help you out should you need it.

for what it’s worth – I have and still am using several different modeling apps, and for woodworking I find SketchUp the best.

it has it’s limitations and some procedures take a bit more work to accomplish, but it’s simplicity and the library of plugins that are available for it make up for it.
